I knew Charlotte at the Osoyoos Packinghouse decades ago. She was indeed “vibrant”. The image that comes to mind is a hardworking woman packing peaches. I can hear her voice, and I write this for her family. They should know that her co-workers knew how important family was to her. Most of our conversations were about family.

Relation: I new her from osoyoos

Charloette always stopped by our shop for a visit,we so enjoyed her. She used to get so annoyed because tourist wouldn’t get out of her way on the side walk, so my son bought her one of those honky horns and attached it to her walker, she had a great time with that.
